Top 10 Countries and Groups Most Likely to Start World War 3

This war will be the end of us, but I wonder who's going to start it.
The Top Ten
1 United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Their military budget exceeds the next 8 combined. Obviously there is a budget imbalance and you can see a problem in it.
Their military bases are everywhere, and intervenes like A LOT. Vietnam war, Syrian civil war, raiding China, raiding Mexico, etc. USA took a big part in them. The most warmongering country ever.
Good thing Hilary is not voted, or else the world would be on fire now, at Feb 2018.

Of course the US would most likely to star WW3, Trump is really eager to prove that he is a military man via allowing war to happen so he can be a general or something. He loves missles and nukes, because there wont be blood for him to see when he starts the war, just a very huge crater.

Trump is threaten Russia, China, North Korea, Syria, Iran and starting trade wars with Mexico and Canada. Trump isn't respected among world leaders, so one of his mistakes could easily start world war 3.

I hate to say it, because I live in the USA! The last thing we need is war. Right now, we're having a war with ourselves! And Oboma can't go accusing every leader for going to attack the US. We will start the war. I just hope to god we win it.

2 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

This has to be number one! I am affended that people say USA will start a war because of Donald Trump. I disagree. First off, Trump is much better than Obama and Hilary has done nothing for the past 20 years. We have to give Trump a chance. On the other hand, North Korea is a country that doesn't let anybody live. They hacked into USA. They have nukes. They are dangerous and scary. USA is the best country ever, leave a like if you agree. GO USA!

North Korea + China is a very warlike alliance. Korea has already shown that they do not have common sense, and they have enough short-range missiles to cause serious problems for someone near them. China has the manpower and economic strength that they might believe that they could win World War 3. Trump will not start WW3 guys, come on!

To be honest, I don't think that the US would start WW3. NK has NUCLEAR BOMBS! All they think about (or at least the government) is the Kim Dynasty and war against the US. And they don't even care about the other countries/ people that they unintentionally hurt while preparing to bomb the US! Think about it, is the US gonna WW3,or NK?

North Korea can't start WWIII on its own. All they can do is restart a regional war between it and South Korea. The United States and China will have to get involved for it to become a global conflict.

3 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

Putin wants war with the west. He hates everything about western culture, seeing it as incomparable with the existance of the Russian state, and wants to obliterate it. He also wants to rebuild the Soviet Union, but under fascist rather than communist domination. This would involve the annexation of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, which are members of NATO.

They have a decent military. And if the Chinese says they're going to war, they're definitely going to back them up.

Tell me one neighbouring country of Russia that would have friendly relations with them? Exactly, there is no.

Putin is a terrible leader with a big fat mouth.

4 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

China dosen't have the strongest military in the world, what's everyone talking about. China has the SECOND strongest!

Well they do have the largest military, and the largest potential amount of reserve troops.

They have the best military in the world. It's tempting not to use it.

5 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

As Pakistan is having 6 best army and India is having the 7 best and you can search. And India also had a war with China and always supports terrorism and it can easily be crushed. And its leader modhi killed around 1000 Muslims in Gujarat he can start a war as his own people call him terrorist and if a war starts countries with Pakistan would be China,North Korea, Russia,Iran,Turkey,all of Middle East( not Israel's),all of Africa( not South Africa) and maybe some Europe countries

Indians be dreaming of nuking Pakistani occupied Kashmir...this is the true face of Indians. These idiots don't understand that people have suffered in the hands of the Indian so called army. Leave Kashmir alone for heaven's sake

The third best military in the world. They usually don't attack other countries like this, but they will if they have to.

Honestly, the raging conflict between pakistan and india is dragging other countries into it (US, Russia, China). This could possibly lead to a WW3

6 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world. Israel is a small country bordering Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt and its official languages are Hebrew and Arabic.

They are not true Jews. They are Mystery Babylon followers. The true Jews aren't welcome there.

Not that it's their fault - people keep fighting over Israel for almost no reason.

They will probably be on the allie's side.

Israel is behind all the international warfare. Remember, AIPAC is behind all these foreign wars and AIPAC is there to do what Israel wants. Israel created ISIS Israëli Secret Intelligence Service

7 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. ...read more.

They could easily bring Russia into conflict with Israel, Europe and the United States.

They already have a problem with the US.

8 ISIS

ISIS is taking over the Middle East. They are a threat to humanity. They have terrorists which attacked powerful countries like USA.

They're asking for it. They really are.

Its not country but any countries supporting this group of psychopaths is likely though

9 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

Pakistan has a really good military with a peaceful intention. They wouldn't start but the Kashmir crisis might get serious. That are friendly if treated correctly

Pakistan is great country and has the power to win against it biggest foe, Indian but because war is not a solution they don't want any trouble and trying to resolve things in a peaceful manner. Pakistan also does not support terrorism. The so called Taliban come from Afghanistan trying to create problem in Pakistan.

These so called jihadis will definitely give the world one more devastating war and off course which will be end of this na-pak nation.

Pakistan has one of the best militarys and would be 3rd nuclear power in the world in coming years...and as pakistan will not support terrorism

10 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

This will further escalate the Syrian Civil war.

Nah. They have their own war to take care of.

The Contenders
11 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.
12 Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

How.

If they survive Russian invasion, they will remain the most peaceful nation in Eastern Europe

13 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

No way! The UK would NEVER start a war! They would help other member of NATO in war, but never cause it.

A really good military, and if the US goes to war, they will probably help us.

Have you people not heard of canadian history?

14 Palestine
15 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.
16 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. About 25 million people, around half of the country's population of 51 million, live in the Seoul Capital Area.

South Korea doesn't want war, with the north, China or anyone else. For a war to start, the north will have to attack them.

17 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

19 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Australia's not really the fighting type, but they are a strong country and may be a valuable ally.

20 United Arab Emirates The United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates or the UAE, is a country located at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Qatar and Iran.

This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

Canada is the most fascist nation in the world at the moment. With the rise of the "Bloc La Quebecois" Aryan supremacy party, Canada has built up a tremendous military with aims at seizing the coastal regions of the United States before launching assaults against the European main continent.

Canada has forged an alliance with Germany. On Facebook, they have asked Japan to join their Axis. And Canada, like their German Axis friends, has decided to go to war. The target they are considering the most right now: The world!
And you might think "The world! " would crush Canada and end this war in about 5 minutes, but analysts predict it will at least be fairly close!

There Is no way that Canada would start WW3. It is a amazing country with amazing people.

Really? Why is Canada in this list?

They would never start a war they are nice people I have a friend who's canadian I should know

22 South Dakota

One of the most threatening nations, I have little doubt that South Dakota will not start the Third World War. Look at their nuclear arsenal!

South Dakota? That is not a country, that is a state in the United States of America
